Increasing use is being made of ultrasonic equipment for the detection of hidden flaws in forgings, slag inclusion in welding, and so on. Apart from the value of such methods of inspection as a safety precaution, the detection of hidden flaws during the early stages of manufacture can contribute considerably to savings in machining costs, since flaws are not always apparent by visual inspection until machining reaches an advanced state. A diagrammatic representation of the testing of a steel bar with a discontinuity, using a Solus-Schall ultrasonic flaw detector is shown.
